Nikki Iles Big Band

Award winning pianist and composer, Nikki Iles brings her 20 piece Jazz Orchestra to the Vortex marking a new chapter in a long and distinguished career in British Jazz, gathering together commissions from over the years, new orchestrations of her own small band tunes and new compositions, all played by the remarkable band she has assembled. The depth and range of the exhilarating writing and arranging suggest it will be less like a debut, but more like seasoned band and a distinctive voice, with the music bought to vivid life by a top draw band.
